5:01 am
♪ with animal crackers in my soup ♪ ♪ animal crackers in my soup do funny things to me ♪ and that is probably always the way we will remember her, just a practice koshous girl learned how to dance at 2, sing at 3, performed her heart out in every performance from 1935 to 1938. that curly hair becoming her signature look. she was the top box office draw, many say she saved 20th century studios from bankruptcy turning over 40 movies before she was age 12. it continued into her teenage years where she did not seem to have as much success and struggled at the box office as she got older although still a real beauty as she aged. as she got older she decided to step away from hollywood, moving to the bay area, marrying a bay area businessman and then
5:02 am
becoming an ambassador, we saw her grow up in front of the camera but she came into her own as an ambassador visiting so many countries around the world. here she is representing our country and a quote from her there. take a listen. >> jamaica in this country is remembered with love, with affection, thought of as a friend which i am. >> reporter: as you can see, she grew into this elegant representative of our country. it's amazing really when you think about how much pressure she had on her as a young girl that she was able to turn that around even when her movies started doing poorly at the box office. she turned it into a political career and did well for our country. just her entire life so. that life ending here in woodside last night at the age of 85. she will certainly be celebrated today as we all look back at her incredible contributions as the
5:03 am
days go forward. >> thank you very much. let's switch gears and talk about the weather. we've got a weather advisory to tell you about this morning as we take a live look outside in san jose. thick fog. we could see airport delays later this morning. also have a live look at the san mateo bridge. visibility a little better there but still an issue for drivers this morning. and this is our live camera in fremont as we take you across the bay area. story not much better there. let's check in with christina loren with what is going on out there. >> hey, good morning to you. basically, fog is not one of those weather elements that stays stationary. it drifts around. that's what we're noticing this morning. as you make your way out the front door you want to make sure you're on high alert. you want to eliminate the distractions in your vehicle and leave a healthy space between you and the car in front of you. if you can control it the guy in back of you as well. this is that kind of fog where even your immediate surroundings you're used to seeing are going to look unfamiliar to you.
5:04 am
we're talking about visibilities down to about 2 1/2 miles in san jose, we're at 5 miles in mountain view and five in half moon bay. the sun starts to make an appearance t fog is going to get worse before it gets better so make sure you give yourself ample time. speaking of which, bob redell is live out there in it this morning. and you can probably attest to this. you'll run into the thick patches of fog, then an area of clearing and boom, before you know it you're back in the fog. it's drifting around, right? >> reporter: yes, i would say that's the best way to describe it being patchy. this dense fog advisory has been in effect now for about an hour until 9:00 this morning. right now we're on northbound 280, the headlights heading in a northbound direction near winchester in san jose. you get a pretty good sense where you can see a lot of -- some of the thickness of the fog. it's not the thickest we've seen but you want to be paying attention out here.
5:05 am
not using the high beams, especially when the visibility drops. the dense fog advisory is in effect because there are some areas where visibility is a quarter mile or less. the case in point livermore, east bay, i noticed on the highway 84 driving in to work this morning. there are other parts in the south bay that are similar. so you don't want to use your high beams and the visibility drops that much. you don't want a wall of light blasting back on you because it makes it harder to drive. if you have fog beams certainly turn those on. so dense fog advisory in effect from pretty much the entire bay area. they say the south bay, the peninsula, north bay, east bay according to the national weather service until 9:00 this morning. slow down and again, don't use the high beam it gets pea soupy out here. >> that is such great advice, bob. this fog is not going to get better over the next couple hours. it's going to keep your temperature down.
5:06 am
grab that jacket. make sure your wipers are ready to go. not only do we have the fog it's traffic tuesday. >> that's right. we expect a high volume of traffic. that's why we refer to it as traffic tuesday. we tend to see the highest volume all week as folks head in for meetings and such. west 580, the headlights passing by the signs, two malls which are not lit up. we can see the headlights which are glowing. and most of us know the fog is an issue. if you put the brighter headlights on you get more reflection back. hopefully you learn that. you can turn them off quickly a. smooth drive reflected on our maps as the orange where the traffic road weather index shows you that. that will be an issue for 84, sunol and pleasanton and fremont. we'll show you other areas like the dumbarton bridge which doesn't show it but we have an advisory. we'll show you the san mateo

5:08 am
the slalom course. >> it's exciting. i knew i wanted to come to sochi and get a medal and just being able to go into my first event and crossing the finish line was two good runs, enough to get a bronze was autumnll i could ask. >> reporter: she has three more events including a downhill on wednesday after posting the top downhill time in the super combined. she is the favorite to win gold. she is one of three american athlete who is won medals in three different olympics. they include her, and speedskaters bonnie blair and apollo anton ono. coming up in 15 minutes we want to show you two new olympic sports. there are two more debuting today and we're going to bring that to you. from the sochi games, janelle wang. >> we'll look forward to it. thanks. >> you can catch all of the

5:10 am
very foggy commute. christina, i know driving in and we drive in super early, it was maybe 50 yards, 75 yards. >> it is really thick. we lived here for some time and we don't typically get this fogged in. across the bay area seeing the reduced visibilities this morning so. give yourself plenty of time. we still have thick fog. as the fog drifts around it does not stay stationary. it is dangerous especially in the south bay valleys. san jose about 2 1/2 miles visibility. but in los gatos you can only see for hundreds of feet so you really want to take it easy. half moon bay down to five miles. we expect all of these to drop off. half a mile in livermore as we head throughout the morning hours. this is what we are expecting when it comes to the fog clearing. this is typical. when we get a rain it's not the following day we get fog it's the day after.
5:11 am
high pressure comes in, compresses all of that remnant moisture and as a result we lose visibility. so this is what we're expecting. the coast will stay foggy, we'll get partial clearing by about 8:00 a.m. by noon clearing but still low clouds hugging the coastline. it's going to be a cool day. we'll get to your temperatures 18 bit. count on what could abdangerous commute to work. let's check on that. >> good morning. as you talked about and we mentioned the computers are great but that's why we're here to interpret the data and with the live shots, this is 101 north twof 80, you can barely see the off ramp on the right. about a quarter mile visibility here. on the map the arrow points up to the 101 interchange. i got word of a crash but i will see if we can see that. southbound 680 on the interchange t bottom of the screen the orange creeps in,

5:18 am
you want to give yourself plenty of time, eliminate distractions in your vehicle. especially taking the little ones to work with you or to school today. two miles visibility at half moon bay. livermore now at a quarter mile. this is what we expect from the fog. take to the your futurecast. at 7:00 a.m. we believe it will be at its worst, that is when we kick off rush hour. we stop the clock again, we meet back here for our 11:00 broadcast. should be mostly clear but for a brief time. then plenty of high clouds streaming in. our next storm system gets organized and starts riding toward the coast. we're not going to see a lot of rainfall, maybe a tenth of an inch in sonoma county. we have a better chance into this weekend. you'll see that on the seven-day foreca forecast. foggy start a sunny mild finish. wednesday, same deal tomorrow, low clouds to start, then it will turn cloudy.

5:20 am
denser fog likely as you come across the santa cruz mountains where christina said her drive was pretty tough as well. looking along the peninsula, traffic moves but watch the coast, we'll see that picking up as well. no major problems. folks travel over likely more fog on the newark side. we do have a slower drive here out of the altamont pass. here where the arrow is, we have a live camera as well. we'll show you those conditions. about maybe a little over a half mile as far as visibility goes. tough to see in those lights. as the prit lights come, use the regular beams. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. now to an exclusive report. accusations of improper payment, the transit district that runs sam trans buses and caltrain are

winchester. good morning to you. this as you mentioned, it's very patchy so here is an area where we have fog but it's not super thick. in the east bay i know in my drive in this morning, you couldn't turn on the bright lights, your high beams, because you would get that wall of white back in your eyes. i do want to show you perhaps you can get a sense of where this dens fog advisory is in effect. in the bay area, shaded gray under the advisory, on this map. we widen out the state, the san joaquin valley sun der the same advisory, you want to count on low visibility if you're making your way to the central valley, south carolina or l.a. on i-5. this dense fog advisory is in effect until 9:00 this morning. so that certainly covers the morning commute. the national weather service as you're aware, issues these advisories when they think
5:36 am
visibility could get below or in the quarter mile range. here it's probably about a mile. as i was telling you, in the quarter mile of visibility which is very dangerous which means you've got to slow down and again, do not use bright beams. it's going to put the wall of white back in your face and in any one who is behind you, you want to use the low. reporting live in san jose. back to you. >> thank you, bob. that's great information. it's nice to have somebody out there live in the field so you can see what's going on before you even walk out your front door. this is what we're working with temperaturewise. in the 40s and 50s to start. ending up in the mid-60s out there. so you want to go ahead and grab a coat because it will be cool for the first part of the day. grab those shades as well. we're going to be left with a lot of sunshine. it will likely make for a slower than normal drive. >> good morning. in the transition time when there is bright sun and the fog is starting to clear it gets
5:37 am
bright so bring those shades. first we start with a crash. i wanted you to notice that stream of lights over to the right side. on the right there is a crash as you approach the bay bridge toll plaza. berkeley curve but coming off 580 is coming to a standstill. the two middle lanes. the map will show you the area we're talking about as you head to the bay bridge. it's here off of that curve and a slow drive here. the fog is the other issue. it shows up on our traffic sensors and in the south bay shows up on our camera shots as well. there you go. might be a crash. i'll check it out. >> thanks. we'll check back with you. now we move on to the winter games in sochi where day four of competition is wrapping up. you're going to see it in prime time. we're going to give you a peek at the results. >> so if you would rather be surprised turn away. we'll play music and when i say so you can look back. simon says look away.
